Quoting xorg.conf man page:

Option "DontVTSwitch"  "boolean"
This disallows the use of the Ctrl+Alt+Fn sequence (where Fn refers to
one of the numbered function keys). That sequence is normally used to
switch to another "virtual terminal" on operating systems that have this
feature.  When this option is  enabled, that key sequence has no special
meaning and is passed to clients. Default: off.

This belongs into the ServerFlags section.
